Indigenous Women of Brazil and Ecuador on the Frontlines: COVID-19 and Defending Communities and the Amazon 60

During this webinar, Indigenous women leaders of the Ecuadorian and Brazilian Amazon will unite to discuss how the devastating coronavirus pandemic is impacting their communities, as they face ongoing deforestation, oil extraction, and Indigenous rights violations in their territories. As is the case across Turtle Island, Indigenous peoples of the Global South are at higher risk of contracting COVID-19 due to a lack of resources and health disparities brought on by centuries of colonial policies and environmental racism.
Indigenous women leaders will share their stories, analysis, wisdom, and advocacy for Indigenous rights, protection of forests, water, communities, and the global climate. We have much to learn from the women’s calls to action, their immediate needs, and their vision for living in respect and well-being with Mother Earth.
